This Artist Creates Amazing Masterpieces From Strangers' Photographs

Some people have artistic eyes that allow them to see ordinary, everyday moments as inspirations for their next masterpieces.

Julio Cesar is a Brazilian artist who just so happens to be one of those gifted people.

For his latest project, Cesar set out to create a series transforming a bunch of normal photographs of people into fun, colorful caricatures.

Surprisingly, tons of Cesar's art muses are actually complete strangers: Anyone can email Cesar his or her photos, and for a small fee, he transforms the pictures into vibrant, whimsical works of art.

At times, his digital illustrations are so lifelike, it looks like they could almost jump right off of the screen.

Take a look at the pictures below to see his animated artwork.
